    Hello,
    I’m interested in buying a DVD Recorder for my PC (SATA connection preferably)
    My goal is to create security backups & images of my existing original CD/DVD collection of PC CD/DVD, SONY PS1-CD, SONY PS-2-CD/DVD, SEGA Saturn & as well as my Movie DVDs.

    What would be the most accurate DVD-Recorder suitable for the job, which can also by-pass the copy protection found in some PC games?

    I’ve read good reviews on the high speed NEC DVD-Recorders, but I’ve heard that they’re not too great when it comes to copying complicated/protected game CD/DVDs.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated,
    Thanks in advance.

    Based on this sheep test guide:
    http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=101608
    I would be interested for a good “3 Sheep” DVD-Recorder that can copy all Safedisk versions etc (capable of correct EFM coding of regular bits & AWS routines), to be able to read/write subchannel data & RAW mode.

    Well, I am also interested in making images of my old DOS CD-ROM PC games (which have CD-Audio tracks as well as data) and then re-burn them onto CD accurately.

    How about a Plextor CD/DVD-recorder?

    On a side note, I tried making an image of a SONY PS-1 game (Mega Man X3), which features audio tracks as well as data, using the latest CloneCD and my ASUS DVD-ROM-E616P, but this message came up: “ASUS DVD-ROM-E616P doesn’t support reading of 96bytes”

    What does this mean; will the final image generated be corrupted?
    Which DVD/CD-Recorder should I get to avoid such problems?
    Thanks in advance.

    I really think you would have better luck with backing up your games in one of the console forums here at AD.
